A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to see the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
All our Linux cloud website hosting include a really convenient tool that will allow you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be active at once, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could set up or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, if required. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anybody who tries to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the correct login info. In case several people must be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
